Farewell to Sarah

For the past ten years our Reading Buddies program has been guided by coordinator Sarah Dodson-Knight. She has nurtured the program and watched as Little Buddies moved on to become readers, and some became Big Buddies and other Library volunteers. Sarah expanded the program in many ways, bringing it to Boulder Ridge Mobile Park, and creating Reading Buddies playdates to keep kids reading throughout the year.

The Library is grateful to Sarah for all of her care and work this past decade and we wish her all the best!
